Speaking for myself, I agree that the current rules are broken and should
be changed.  (My preference is to change them as part of a systematic
effort to remove the ad hoc paternalistic rules of the spec.)  But I note
that the WG has in fact discussed either this precise question, or closely
related questions, before, and established that (at least at that time) we
could not achieve consensus either way on what to do about them.  See,
for example, the minutes of the meeting in Redmond in August, 2004 (discussion
of RQ-147b) at


The minutes do not show, but I remember fairly vividly, that we spent an
hour or two on the issue, and feelings ran rather high; they do show
that we did not achieve any consensus at all.

So my personal recommendation is to classify this issue, in view of the
calendar date, as LATER.  I'd like to resolve it, but I do not want to
delay XSD 1.1 for a fruitless attempt to reach consensus on it, or even for
a successful revision of the spec in this regard.
